Taking Education Up, Up, and Away
LSCs from across the district gathered on July 30th and 31st to kick off the new school year and to “Take Education Up, Up, and Away”. They reviewed policies and procedures regarding special education and the new state mandated IEP format. As a pilot district for the IEP development committee at the state level, DeSoto County Schools special education teachers began using the new IEP format to write students’ 2014-2015 IEPs. LSCs gained important information from the Special Education Department about changes in policies, using behavior services, and involving parents in transition services for students.
